Uncertain which career path to choose, I worked as a Rag Baler, Deck Hand, Tugboat Mate, Boat-builder, House Carpenter, Marine Repair Shop Owner, Psychotherapist, Counselling Instructor, and Executive Director of non-profit mental health organisations. I retired before I’d decided what to do with my life.
My second book, published in May 2017, is about the 20 years I ran a boat repair shop and is called – I Need My Yacht by Friday—True Stories from the Boat Repair Yard, available on Amazon.
My third book, called Um, Where is Belize? — a Journey into the Unknown, is slated for release in June 2017, and tells of an impromptu road trip I took, with a cousin I had never met, on a journey from Vancouver to Central America and back.
I plan a fourth book called “Unsteady Jobs” which could apply to most of the jobs I had.
Still attracted by bodies of water, I live along the shores of beautiful Howe Sound.
